Chris Jericho is no doubt a future WWE Hall of Famer and a worthy candidate for the honorable class that recognizes the credentials of pro wrestlers. Although he’s currently under contract with All Elite Wrestling right now, he will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame one day.
During a recent Q&A session hosted on his podcast, Talk Is Jericho, Jericho was asked who he would select to induct him into the Hall of Fame. This is where he named Kevin Owens.
“I used to think that Shawn Michaels would be good, but he has done it before,” Jericho explained. “I think, honestly, Kevin Owens would be good and I’ll tell you the reason why. He grew up as a fan of mine and then I ended up doing this amazing angle with him. We had great chemistry,” Jericho said.
“And, again, a cool whole eight-month angle or whatever it was, so I think it would be kind of cool to have him do it from both sides of the coin, from being a fan of Chris Jericho and then getting to work with Chris Jericho. Like, when Shawn got inducted, they never asked me, but I would have been a real good candidate. I would say Kevin Owens or my go-to answer is always Funaki.”
Jericho is slated to take on Kenny Omega for a second time at the AEW Double or Nothing event is set to take place May 25th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
